If any questions come to mind, I have a pretty good database of links where EO writers cover various issues.  It is definitely a paradigm shift from Western Christianities in many ways.

BTW, I think you have heard of Timothy Keller (an apologist in the reformed tradition) but if you have never read Marylinne Robinson (novelist and essayist) I think you might like her work.  She is very steeped in the Reform tradition and is a great writer.  Her collection of essays entitled "The Death of Adam" is excellent.  Her novel "Gilead" is one of the best things I have read in the last 10 years.

"The Origin of Satan" by Elaine Pagels is also very good. Phone Post

 Gilead is great. It is a pastor writing letters to his young son since he is going to die soon and he wants his son to know his father better when he is older.  It won a Pulitzer Prize.
